PMID:  17508049     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
CASE REPORT: Setleis syndrome is a rare ectodermal dysplasia with characteristic ophthalmic findings. We describe the first 2 reported cases in Canadian individuals of Aboriginal descent.
COMMENTS: Although most ophthalmic findings are benign, it is important to recognize the clinical significance for management and genetic counselling. We postulate an autosomal dominant inheritance in our cases.
